And in my religious fanaticism, I am starting to wonder if doomsday and the apocalypse are near or here and if this war of Russia and Georgia that has almost seemingly come from out of nowhere with its recent headlines of war and oil could be the beginning of the end of the world and the beginning stages of World War III. And did these Russia, Israel headlines all start around 08/08/08, the beginning of the summer Olympics? And then what about that 12/12/12 end of the world thing. and what would that Nostradamus, Quatrain X.74 have to say about this and that seven year tribulation. And is this the war of Gog and Magog? And who or what is Gog and Magog? And I have always wondered if Russia, Gog and Magog had something to do with the end of the world and prophecy of some sort that is beyond me at the moment to even attempt to try and comprehend. And in my 2012 fanaticism thoughts and those top ten signs of the end of the world, I have always looked out for signs of Russia and WWIII in there somewhere. And I have been following this year 2007 and 2008 and that number of four years of something or someone to appear during these years for a while now, that passes me by at the moment. And what does this all mean. And that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia does seems to have entry for this Gog and Magog as follows:
7. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, :8. And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
And what this all may mean, it is beyond me to comprehend. Though I do believe these recent events may be found in prophecy somewhere. And so I just came across this posting I posted a while ago as follows, if you believe:
The Holy War
Easter is upon us. It is the Holy Week and Jesus, religious articles and programing are gracing the pages of publications and airwaves everywhere. While this topic is too extensive to write about in one paragraph, I am attempting to summarize it. Just a couple of days ago I was watching a program on CNN about the end times. Is it the end of the world? There were two guests on who had written a book about the end of the world who could have been speaking right off of the website Prophecy Central http://bible-prophecy.com , a world of information about biblical prophecy that details an outline of the future. I am a religious fanatic and I believe we are living in the last days, though this has been said since the beginning of time many of the bible prophecies and scriptures are being fulfilled in our time. I believe in the Mayan calendar 2012 theory also, that when their calendar ends in 2012 the world is over. And I also believe that Babylon is New York, The Statue of Liberty, a great whore who sits on a beast having seven heads over many waters, nations and tongues with ten horns on her head who burns with fire. The CNN program detailed something like: Israel became a nation in 1948, captured Jerusalem in 1967 plus 40 years, a bible generation equals 2007, a super sign the end is near. The Battle of Armageddon, World War III, the Antichrist, and the mark of the beast will occur in 2007, now that's a really scary sign, and Iran preparing for nuclear war against Israel, possible Ezekiel's war of Gog and Magog. And the false prophets will say "Peace, peace" when there is no peace. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:6-8. Here is a prophetic top 10 predictions of the end of the world from a prophecy website to be interpreted: 1. Global Terrorism 2. Unrest in the Middle East 3. National I.D. Initiatives 4. Military buildup 5. The worlds growing focus on Jerusalem 6. The European Unions political merger . 7. Ecumenicalism (One World Religion) 8. Civil liberty concerns 9. The collapse of morality 10. China's growing economic and military might.
The microprocessor and microchips fit in there somewhere. Watch and be ready for the return of Jesus Christ and if the year 2007 passes and no end of the world.......
Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.
